Holy Crap. It’s been over 90 Blagues since I’ve written and (if you know me at all) I will hoe the tough road of filling in each and every one. I may “cheat a bit” but not really because I would only be cheating myself. I have to learn to love to write again. Today is actually Capricorn 12° not Libra 12° so, yeah, I’m 90 days and Blagues “behind”. So behind in fact that I hadn’t checked to see what it is I last wrote. Only to discover….no the fuck wonder I haven’t written this Blague in over 90 days. Holy Fawke. It was the day I learned of a certain rejection that sent me off this particular rail. However, in the meantime I did write an entire new show for performance and twelve year ahead horoscope books for 2018. Not to mention the fact I took a trip to Europe and I’m currently now on a boat somewhere off Grenada. Coriacou I think the island is called. So I now revist this Blague, full circle and will italicize new bits I’m writing whilst leaving unitalicized and bits and bobs I managed to quickly type into the word document I keep as home base for formulating my ideas before cutting and pasting them onto the site you’re reading. It is January 3, 2018 and I’m full of cautious intention. Last year I spent that first whole full week of 2017 writing a book proposal which has not seen any real light of day. I am actually “giving myself another year” to accomplish that which I wanted to see take root last year. Come March 20 I will start my fourth? fifth? year of Blague. (I’ll find out which and get back to you) and I have plans on that score as well. Anyway the following bit is what I had as a placeholder here for this day, October 12, 2017:
Russell Brand has been working his book tour. The title of the book is Recovery subtitled Freedom from Addictions. Okay where to begin. I like Russell (and not just because I hear he is a fan of our work). But because he has an astounding way of communicating and a extraordinary breadth of knowledge on which he draws. I don’t really know his comedy but I will call him a genius, a word I reserve for reals (many people say that but throw that word around wantonly). He has a genius mind. You see it in the way it works. And yet, hmmmm. Many celebrities have been and are in recovery. They keep it personal and don’t exploit it. And along comes Gemini Russell Brand who is genius at expressing himself and, in this case, reinterpreting the twelve steps for…the masses?
Now I have always thought that it shouldn’t be something to capitalize upon—ones own recovery—but I guess if anyone can pull it off he can. Everyone I know who has read the book loves it. I might get around to reading it myself this year.
Typos happen—I don’t have time or an intern to edit.*
